Farlows 92nd edition catalogue

Post by Jardine » Sun Nov 19, 2017 6:00 pm

I also have this Farlows catalogue ,the 92nd edition.
it is not dated but since Farlows was founded in 1840 I am assuming it is from 1932.

Hi Nobby,
it looks like it was one of Farlows own make reels, and cost £2-10/ back in the day.
I guess it must be a pretty rare item, I wonder if any TFF members have one?
Best regards

Hmmm....a spinning reel. That'd be interesting to see...I know I couldn't cast a spinning lure with a centrepin, but I suppose someone else can. I've never even heard of it before, let alone seen one.

There's one for sale on a certain website if you want to have a look at the inside.
There are three things that improve with age: wine, friendship and water sense, and there's no short cut.

Thank you gentlemen, you have finally nailed the maker of this pin in my collection. I had also thought it was a funny looking Speedia, possibly home made. Its very light weight and extremely free running with the positioning of the check lever a pure joy.

Thanks again.
